Adel Taarabt admits he is growing frustrated at his lack of first-team football with Queens Park Rangers.
The Moroccan was a leading figure in helping Neil Warnock' side to the Championship title last season, but he has not made the expected impact this term.
Over the summer a mooted switch to Paris Saint Germain failed to materialise, and he has since been linked with possible moves to Italy and Spain with Napoli and Malaga.
Now Taarabt admits that he is unhappy at spending time on the substitutes bench.
"I want to play week in, week out," he said.
"I am not happy to sit on the bench - my job is to play football.
"I understand I can not play every game but we play only once in a week so I need to be doing that and starting the game."
